The Dream Explanatorium
welcome visitor   this website
"We are such stuff as dreams are made of; and our little life is rounded with sleep", Shakespeare once wrote. Dreams are as much part of our (little) lives as everything else we encounter, and they occupy about at least 25% of our time. For The Dream Explanatorium this is reason enough to present this no nonsense information and entertainment product to internet users.
Everybody dreams. It is a normal and necessary function of the body. So if you think you don't dream you probably just don't remember. Perhaps, the most prominent reason why people forget their dreams is that they don't want to remember. And that's exactly where The Dream Explanatorium comes in!!!

history of dream analysis   freud & dreams
People have always had an interest in dreams. The Babylonians, 5000 years B. C., had a Goddess of Dreams, Mamu, and a book for interpreting dreams. The Egyptians, in 3000 B.C., also had a God of Dreams, Serpis, and famous people, like Joseph from the bible, were dream interpreters. They even had self-help techniques for inducing certain dreams. They thought, as we do now, that dreams were able to satisfy some of our psychological needs and could change our mood.
Read all about it on the concise History of Dream Analysis page.
  Of course, The Dream Explanatorium will not leave out the undisputable achievements in the field of dream intepretation Professor Doctor Sigmund Freud (1856-1939), founder of psychoanalysis. For your convenience you can search an abstract of his famous and infamous The Interpretation of Dreams (1900) for keywords to familiarise yourself with the material - without having to read the whole book! No professional psychoanalist leaves home without it.
Here you can also learn how to interpret and Analyse your Own Dreams with Freud's method. A must for anyone interested in the true meaning of dreams!!!
common misconceptions   dream survey   quotes on dreams
On this page you will find an article called Common Misconceptions about Dreams (1975) from a pamphlet by Professor Dr. Diva E. Foldebrun, who became renown for her cruisade against the mystification of the dream and its contents, and against the malpractise of psychologists without a certificate in the early 70's.   What would a serious dream related web site be without it? With this Dream Survey we are trying to gain more knowledge about the quality and quantity of common dream themes of our visitors. Your contribution will be much appreciated! The Dream Survey Results so far are more than worth a visit.   What did Bob Dylan, Marcel Proust, Franz Kafka, William Burroughs, Heraclites and Lyndon B. Johnson have to say about dreams?
Dreams have always been a great source of inspiration for the arts, and our favourite famous and not so famous Quotes on Dreams collection proves it.
